I love love love cooking! I also bake. I think my food is more like comfort food/home-cooking rather than on the gourmet side.
My interest in culinary arts started in fourth grade when we had a valentines day cooking competition at school and I have been hooked ever since. The food network is one of my favorite channels. Before sewing took over my life I used to love to plan what to cook for dinner and I really loved to serve it beautifully. I still do, I just don't do it as often as I used to.... mostly because it takes a lot to rip me away from my sewing machine.
I really believe in serving delicious food that didn't take a million years to make. If I can do it in under 30 minutes I am ecstatic. I think so far my family and friends favourite meal of mine is (from scratch always) chicken cordon bleu, grilled veggies and brown rice. I try to balance health and yummy food. It helps that my partner in crime has three major dislikes. He frowns at food that is too processed, greasy or salty. Usually keeps me on track... he def doesn't have my same love for cheese!!
